This is the second timing chain tensioner I will be replacing in the last 2,000 miles.

So my question is, do I just put the tensioner on and pull the pin and that is it. Or do I need to assist the tensioner at first in getting the slack out of the chain?

This is the style with the hydraulic and the toothed mechanism as well.

Any pointers?

You can always prime the engine untill you see oil bleed from the tentioners..?
